IQ Option (B) vs Columbia

Two teams with similar goals, IQ Option Black and Columbia, faced each other for the last match of 2018 primary league. Everyone expected either a close game with few goals or a high balanced score.
However, Columbia players were in a great form and dominated the match from the first half by scoring three goals and conceding just one. They didn’t stop there and continued on the same tempo at the second half with the final score being 7-2. It is important to note that all Columbia players actively contributed to the goals scored whereas Giovis Enoupoo scored twice for IQ Option Black.
IQ Option Black is stuck on the bottom of the table with two points but they just need a win for their confidence to be boosted and face the future with increased motivation. On the other hand, this was an important win for Columbia and with the seven goals scored are now the third best-attacking side of the league.
Time to relax, enjoy the Christmas holidays and return back in 2019 with a greater desire for football!

Exness vs IQ Option 4-3

The players arrived early at the stadium to prepare themselves for the big game. The tension was visible and they couldn’t wait to get started.

The final started on time and Exness scored with just seconds to go, with Ivan Parasidis taking advantage of Denis Parasidis’ assist. IQ Option took charge after that and dominated the game, missing a few chances in the process. Aleksey Zaytsenkov warned Exness with a few missed chances but finally equalised with a long-range shot. That was the score for the first half.

The second half started with a lot of stress and mistakes from both sides. Exness took advantage of a few opportunities given to them and took a 3 -1 lead. Their scorers were Aleksey Kokhanov and Sergey Khilenko. IQ Option goalkeeper was suspended with a red card which made things extremely difficult for the “Oranges”. But they were not willing to give up. They eventually decreased the score deficit with Bernardo Silva and leveled the score in injury time with a fantastic solo effort from Aleksey Zaitsenkov.

The game was over and the winner was going to be decided in the penalty shootout.

IQ Option missed all 3 of their penalties and Exness scored just one which proved enough to give them the win! Denis Popovkin’s winning penalty meant the dancing and singing for Exness had begun!
What a dramatic final! Well done to both teams for their excellent behaviour and providing us with fantastic suspense during the game. We would also like to thank all fans for coming to watch.

Congratulations to Exness on winning the cup!

A great surprise was up at the ceremony since ex-Polish and Apoel FC striker Marcin Zewlakow was our guest of honor and gave both teams their medals.

We hope you all enjoyed our Cup and we look forward to your participation next year!

BDSwiss desperately needed points to avoid finishing last in this game but they had to overcome an inform IQ Option side who are in preparation mode for the Cup Final.
The game started well with a goal for each team. A red card for BDSwiss, however, changed the balances of the game since they didn’t have any substitutes available for replacement. Luckily enough, this only lasted for a few minutes since an extra player came late and joined his teams effort!
IQ Option won the game in the end in a dramatic match!
We hadn’t expect so much suspense in this game! IQ Option keep the win in their attempt to get ready for the final while BDSwiss fought till the very end but fell short of energy and passion.

XM 1 vs Swiss Markets 5-2

XM 1 wanted to finish their league run with a victory on the last match. They started the season really well but a few injuries caused the team to drop some points and they fell behind in the chase for the Championship. This demotivated the team to do better as they should have earned much more points by the end of the season. With their apprarance in the last match they showed everyone that they are no pushovers and will be very strong next year as they will aim for the top.

Swiss Markets have enjoyed a run of good games but need to show consistency if they are to achieve a higher position next year. Top Scorer Costas Ioannides was not in shape yesterday and the team in general failed to perform their usual football. Maybe if they had a few substitutes on the bench to rest some players during the game then they could increase their chances of winning some more points.

Overall, the final score is quite fair and XM 1 deserved the 5-2 win.

RCB vs Exness 0-6

Exness wanted the win to prepare themselves for Friday’s final, but hey faced tough opposition from RCB. The game started off well, with both teams showing signs of attacking football. Exness however wanted to finish the game early in order to rest some players for the final and that was possible after the score was 3-0.

RCB tried to step up but failed to convert their chances to goals giving Exness the opportunity to finish off the game. The final score 6-0 was more than fair. Both teams seemed happy at the end of the game since Exness finished second and prepared themselves for the big final, while RCB finish away from last position which was a great achievement considering they were stuck there for the majority of the season.

Last Round

So here we are with only one week to play in the SoGoFootball Elite Business League.

Columbia has already been crowned champions but still, want to win their last match against XM 2 who also need the points to make sure they finish in the top 5 positions. Columbia wants to finish the League first and unbeaten!

Exness want to return to their winning ways following their loss last week and in preparation for the Cup Final. They will face RCB who have jumped a place last week and have a chance to finish away from the last place.

XM 1 who are battling for the third place come up against Swiss Markets. XM 1 will seal third place with a win and don’t want to think of any result other than that. Swiss Markets, on the other hand, could finish as high as fifth with a win, but could even come last if they lose and teams below them win! Hopefully this week they will not play with a player less and will win to avoid any shock!

The other Cup Finalist, IQ Option, will want to prepare themselves for the final with a win. They are also in the hunt for third place in the league. Their opponents BDSwiss, however, have dropped down to last place last week and desperately need some points to finish as high as possible!

We still need to find out who the Top Scorer and Assist Leader will be for the season as many players are still keeping tabs on the prizes. Current Leader Costas Ioannides was absent last week and others had the chance to catch up.

All trophies will be given at the end of the games!

See you all there!

Exness vs Columbia 1-3

One week before the end of the season and Columbia have clinched the title by increasing their margin to 6 points from second placed Exness.

It all began with a very stressful game filled with anxiety and passion. We all know how strong these two teams are, but in order to win this match we needed to see something extra from either side. The game was well balanced and both teams attacked more as the game was played on.
It was only in the second half were the teams started to show the first signs of fatigue that we started to see the game gradually being set on fire.
Both teams played very well and the team that was more accurate on goal was the one to take the win. A win that would mean a Championship as well, since Columbia finally saw that their season’s efforts finally paid off! Columbia still remain the only unbeaten side in the league!
The final whistle was the start to the Columbia celebrations and the famous song “Campeones” was sang with great joy and enthusiasm from the winners! It was also a great pleasure to see many fans at the pitch for both teams, and of ofcourse the winning side’s spectators joined in all the cheering!
At this point we would like to thank both teams for their excellent sportsmanship behaviour and playing fair and square on the pitch.

Not Easy At All!

IQ Option vs Swiss Markets 2-5

So what if Top Scorer Costas Ioannides was absent? So what if Swiss Markets appeared at the pitch with only 4 players?
The game was competitive from the very first minute. IQ Option thought this would be an easy one and started the match rather complacent.
Goals on either end kept us on our toes, but it was really the fact that Swiss Markets got really tired and couldn’t cope with the demands of the game that gave it away.
IQ Option should have finished the game earlier but Swiss Markets really tried to overwrite the fact that they were a man down for the entire game. The final score doesn’t really reflect how close the game was since the winners made sure they cleared the score difference in the end.
IQ Option keeps the three points in their attempt to finish third.
Now one match left for each team to play in the final week of the League.

Almost There!

Two weeks left for the end of the first ever SoGoFootball Business League to finish and the build up to who will be crowned Champions is higher than ever!
In fact, we could even have a champion this week if Columbia wins Exness in their highly anticipated encounter. Columbia faced a shock exit from the Cup and now will give it their best for the championship. Exness is still alive in the hunt for the double and after their qualification to the Cup final now face Columbia in a must win the game to level them on points. We remind you that the score between them for the game was 3-0 for Columbia. Exness must win with at least the same score in order to stand a chance to win the Championship.

Another derby match on Monday night, this time for RCB and BDSwiss, with both teams desperately in need of the win to avoid the last place in the table. RCB were waiting for this game for a while now, but it will not be an easy task against BDSwiss who have shown what a tough opponent they can be in their attempt to avoid the last place.

The XM’s battle for 3rd place as they tie with 14 points is another interesting match up this week. This game will be a real battle within the walls of the company as the players will forget friendships and smiles for 40 minutes and play for the win in order to finish on top of their colleagues and make sure they are the ones smiling in the office on Tuesday morning! Two players involved in the Top Scorer hunt are also involved in this game, one for either team, and it remains to see how they will do in their race for the Golden boot.

IQ Option is also keeping an eye on the 3rd place, and after their massive qualification to the Cup Final will do everything they can to win on Monday. Of course, that is not an easy task as they face Swiss Markets who are looking on fire right now, especially with Top Scorer Costas Ioannides keeping his eyes on the prize and in need of a few goals to avoid losing the Golden Boot just two weeks before the end of the season!

Good Luck to everyone!

And The Teams That Progress To The Cup Final Are…

The end of the semifinals saw Exness and IQ Option pair up for the Cup Final!

Exness played well to win RCB bank 9-1 in the first match in a game that didn’t provide any shocks. RCB appeared with many absences but Exness played their best all the way to the end. Now they await the match against Columbia on Monday for the league in a must-win encounter for them.
Surely tonight’s semifinal wasn’t the best of tests for them, but they showed that they are one of the highest scoring teams and always play attacking the football. RCB, on the other hand, did their best but fell short of energy. Now they look towards the last two games of the league with interest, as they will try to avoid the last place at the end of the season.

In the second semifinal, favorites Columbia fell short of enthusiasm and lost to IQ Option who played one of their best games, managing to progress to the final. IQ Option, in their highest scoring game, showed that they deserve a better place in the league. They will try to finish third in the league while they prepare themselves for the Cup Final.
Columbia came to the game with many absences and IQ Option was not willing to forgive them for this. They played well and didn’t allow Columbia to believe in qualification at any point.
Columbia now looks only at Monday night’s match to seal the Championship with a win. The final score was 7-1 for IQ Option.

IQ Option vs Exness 0-2

It was clear from the beginning that both teams wanted to win for their own reasons. Exness needed the three points to remain alive in the hunt for the Championship, while IQ Option wanted to win to remain in third place and also gain a good psychological advantage ahead of their Cup semi-final game against Columbia on Friday.

The game was really tight with neither team willing to take risks up front. IQ Option had most of the possession but failed to score when given the opportunity. Exness where more concentrated in front of goal and scored twice before halftime.

IQ Option put the pressure on all the way until the end, but Exness’ defense proved impossible to beat. The final score means Exness will have it all to play in next week’s game against Columbia. They remain just three points behind them and need to win to level them on points. We remind you that Columbia is the only team to have won Exness, and the score of the first match was 3-0.

IQ Option now look forward to their semi-final Cup fixture on Friday!

BDSwiss vs Columbia 1-10

With only three games remaining Columbia had nothing but the win in mind. On the other hand, BDSwiss were not going to give up the fight and so the first 10 minutes of the game were quite level. Once the deadlock was broken it was a different game altogether, however, and BDSwiss found it difficult to keep up with the pace that Columbia had set.

BD Swiss tried hard and it was nice to see them play attacking football and not stay back and defend. Columbia was the better side and finished off the game. We saw a few nice goals as well in the process. Now they prepare for next week’s match against Exness and will certainly want to win and be crowned champions of the first SogoFootball Business League!

We remind you that Columbia has the best goal difference in the league and still remain the only unbeaten team!

XM 2 vs Swiss Markets  3-12

A very open game right from the start, with no signs of defensive strategies from either side. It was clearly going to be a match with a lot of goals.

Costas Ioannides scored 6 goals on the day and moved clear to the top of the Goalscorers list, while Vasilis Koudounas only scored once and fell behind in the race. Only two more games left to see who will finish top, but I think that Swiss Market’s striker has one hand on the trophy already!

The score of the game could have been higher since there were a lot of shots taken on both sides, both on and off target.

The two teams seem to be trying to figure out their strategies for the next season already, as we have seen several players trying out new positions and roles within the field.

6 goals scored on the same match is a record for our League!

RCB vs XM 1  2-2

Following the shock of their cup elimination on the penalty shoot out, XM 1 wanted to bounce back when they faced RCB who are currently at the bottom of the table.

The game was level from the start, and it was difficult to point out a winner. RCB is continuously proving how their league position doesn’t match their potential. They desperately don’t want to finish last this season and are doing well to achieve that goal. Unfortunately for them Swiss Markets won their game and moved up; so now they have to overpass BDSwiss who remain just 2 points clear.

XM 1 moved up to third place with the draw they earned, though level on points with XM 2 and IQ Option. XM 1 is one of only 3 teams in the league that has a positive goal difference. Their new target is to finish third alone now and they have two more games to obtain that goal.

On an another note, Christos Asprou only managed to score once and needs to score more if he is to stay in the race for the Top Goalscorer award.

 

Round 12 Underway!

Round 12 is underway as the list of this week’s fixtures holds a few interesting games.
For a start, RCB face XM 1 and both teams are showing improvement and want to win. RCB need the three points to increase their chances to move away from the bottom of the table while XM 1 want to continue their run of good appearances despite losing to Columbia last week and to Exness in the Cup. This is their chance to get the win and climb a spot or two in the table.
XM 2 will play against Swiss Markets and both sides will give it their best to win and improve their position in the table. Vasilis Koudounas will try to score as well in order to remain in the top scoring position.
League leaders Columbia will face BDSwiss in a rematch of Friday’s cup match between the two sides. For Columbia winning is a one way road as the wish to remain top while BDSwiss want a better result than that of the Cup.
Exness and IQ Option will play the last match of the night and it looks like a tough game. Exness need to win to make sure they are right behind Columbia ahead of next week’s game, while in form IQ Option need to show they are in good shape for the semifinals of the Cup.
Good luck to all!

Columbia – XM 1  5-2

League leaders Columbia were up against XM 1 who have played well in recent games. Many thought this was the night were Columbia would stumble and fall but they have their eyes on the prize and are continuing to cruise to the Championship!
Columbia had a difficult task to begin with having Socratis Christofi out with an injury and XM 1 starting the game with no substitute available on the bench. Both teams put their problems aside, however, and stayed focused in this really important game.
They both had their chances as expected but Columbia were more accurate on target. It was a match with a lot of strong tackles and fouls since strength took over technique.
XM 1 now look forward to the cup as they want to start fresh and prepared to progress to the semifinals.
After the end of this round we have to note down the fact that all five top goal scorers scored at least once this week giving extra suspense as to who will win the golden boot of the season!

XM2- IQ Option 5-6

We had no idea what we were up to ahead of this fixture; what a surprise the two teams had in store.
Only minutes earlier, the cup draw brought the teams face to face against each other in the quarterfinals and one would think that they would start the match reserved and holding back. The result was quite the opposite I must say!
IQ Option scored first, only for XM2 to turn it around and lead by 5-2 at halftime. Those that thought the game was over were simply fooled as IQ Option managed to level the game only minutes away from the final whistle.
Another IQ Option draw was underway when a goal on the last second completed their comeback giving them all three points! Certainly a match to remember!
Now we look forward to the two teams meeting again on Friday in their rematch and surely we expect the same drama from the game!

The match started of in a friendly manner but it wasn’t long till the first goals changed the balances in the game. The tie at the end is a fair result as the final whistle couldn’t separate the two sides. Swiss Markets and RCB are the most improved teams over the last few games and it seems that they are both trying very hard to avoid finishing in the last positions of the league.
Good news for both teams is that BDSwiss lost and that means that they now moved one point closer to them.
Top goalscorer Costas Ioannides managed to score a goal and stay in top position, this time joint with Vasilis Koudounas of XM 2

Exness – BD Swiss 12-1

Exness were the favorites, to begin with, but no one imagined a score like this. BDSwiss were short of players this week but it was clear that Exness wanted the win much more. Earning the three points was a one-way road for Exness and they were up to prove a point.
Only seconds after the game started Exness scored, taking an early lead. BDSwiss were trying to regroup but by that time Exness were way in front in the scoreline.
They played really nice team football and gave no chance to their opponents to claim anything from the game. BDSwiss tried to balance things in the second half and played organised from the back.
We enjoyed a nice attacking game where Exness took what they wanted and stayed right behind Columbia only 2 weeks before the match between them.

Cup – Draw

So after the cup draw today the quarterfinals are as follows:

RCB qualifies without playing
Exness – XM 1
Columbia – BDSwiss
IQ Option – XM 2

At this point we would like to thank our special guests Mr. Bernd Stange, Mr. Freddie John Paul and Mr.Zafiris for their presence at our draw.

For the Cup only, each team is allowed to add 2 more players, providing they work in their company.

Also, in the case of a draw at the end of a knockout match, there is no extra time, and the game will head straight to penalty shootout. Each team will take 3 penalties. After that, if we still have a draw, then we will follow the process of “sudden death”.

Good luck to all teams!

Second-placed Exness go head to head with BDSwiss who look to be in form at the moment. Exness don’t want to loose any points in order to take advantage of any points Columbia might drop.
IQ Option will play against XM 2 and as both teams are looking rather unstable in their results lately, this will be a good opportunity for either end to get back on track.
On the other side of the table, Swiss Markets will face RCB. Both teams won last week with big scores and desperately want to continue their winning ways and increase their run. Swiss Markets want to stay on top of RCB in the League table so winning is a one-way road.

RCB vs XM 2  5-3

At a pre-match glance, we were up for an interesting  game since the two teams appeared at the stadium with their best players absent. XM 2 top scorer Vasilis Koudounas was out due to suspension and goalkeeper Maxim Pepelyaev was absent for RCB Bank. 

XM 2 came to the game with only 5 players, and RCB took advantage of that starting the game very well. The match looked to be finished just after the second half had began when RCB went up 4-0 but XM 2 hadn’t given up just yet, making it 4-3 and setting fire to the game! Another goal from MVP Philopimin Ellinas made the final 5-3 and unfortunate XM 2 had no energy left to turn things round.

The second victory of RCB was sealed and now they look to build on that. XM 2, on the other hand, will quickly want to forget this game and certainly will look forward to the return of their scorer for the next game.

IQ Option vs Columbia 0-5

A highly anticipated game between two very good sides. Lots of people thought that IQ Option had the quality to break the winning streak that Columbia has enjoyed. 
For the first 10 minutes it looked like, they were right, as the teams enjoyed a balanced encounter. But it all turned upside down as Columbia scored goal after goal, finishing IQ Option’s hopes in any positive result out of the game.
Once more Columbia proved to be too hard to beat, as goalkeeper Christos Markoullis kept another clean sheet on the night. Mario’s Nicolaou scoring ability proved lethal for Columbia and made the difference in the game.

The absence if Sergey Astakhov proved too much for IQ Option following his red card from last weeks game. Benjamin Ribeiro was the man to stand out for IQ Option. It remains to be seen if league leaders Columbia will remain unbeaten till the end of the season.

XM1 vs Exness  1-2

In a game where both teams wanted to win, we were up for an interesting match. Exness had to win to make sure Columbia were still in reach, while XM 1 needed the points to move closer to XM 2 in the table. 
The game was dominated by passion and strength. Lots of fouls were given by the referee. The stress was building high and so the players were short of concentration in front of goal, failing to score on either side in several occasions. The low scoring result was a result of this.
Exness dominated the first 10 minutes of the match and scored twice to lead 2-0. XM 1 had their period of dominance but only scored once, meaning the crazy last 10 minutes was full of ups and downs. Numerous attacks and shots went missing, and so the final 2-1 meant Exness took the three points and stayed within reach of league leaders, Columbia.

The two teams faced the game without any pressure and looked forward to an enjoyable evening. At the back of their head, however, both wanted to win and take the three points their way.
It was an open game, both teams neglected defensive strategies and focused on attack. Many players tried many dribbles which were nice to view.
Costas Ioannidis certainly didn’t see the game as a friendly match and scored 5, significantly moving up the top scorers list! Robert Paluch tried to save the day for his team, but he was short of help.
Spectators enjoyed a stress-free, high scoring game. In the end, Swiss Markets clinched the victory and moved closer to BD Swiss in the table. Let’s just wait and see who will finish higher by the end of the season!

This Week’s Fixtures

After last week’s results, we are expecting the next matches to be filled with excitement and drama. All teams are showing improvement but some are desperately in need of some points on the table. This week is a great opportunity for all teams to improve their current position.
Also, the top goalscorer award seems to be hiding a few surprises, as quite a few players are keeping a close eye on the top position. Especially this week, as Vasilis Koudounas is out due to suspension, this gives the opportunity for others to either catch up or even take over!
Interest is also building up for the assist leader award, as a few players are improving their individual tally, improving both their teams chances for a win, but also their own position in the rankings!
So lets see what is hiding behind round 10 in a highly anticipated round!
Good luck to all teams!

League leaders Columbia continue to cruise their way to the Championship as they beat RCB’s resistance. The scoreboard doesn’t really reflect the image of the game, as RCB gave a strong fight to earn something from the game. 
It was an open game right from the start, and those who thought that RCB were going to stay back and defend, were mistaken. There was a clear difference in the scoring abilities of the two sides however and was the decisive element in who was to win.
Stelios Kalopedis was on fantastic form scoring four times and making sure Columbia stayed away from trouble like last week. Columbia is looking unstoppable right now and it remains to be seen if there is any team worthy of breaking their unbeaten run.

XM 2 vs BDSwiss 2-1

The rain was constantly pouring as the sun went down. The slippery surface made it difficult for the two teams to play their football. It was all about strength and power. 

Very few chances from either side marked the first half, but two very late goals back to back from either side came to unsettle the scenery! For BD Swiss it was late coming to Peter Kosman who scored, and for XM2 who else? Vasilis Koudounas made sure he was on the scoresheet! 
A stunning second half was underway with chances on both ends, but Vasilis Koudounas assisted ex-goalkeeper Constantinos Oueida who made it 2-1! Not a bad tactical decision after all! 
XM 2 defended their lead and BD Swiss failed to convert their chances into goals, and that meant that XM 2 walked away with the three precious victory points. Vasilis Koudounas gave away his man of the match by getting a second yellow on the very last minute, which meant not only that he was sent off, but that he will miss the next match in a crucial point for both his team and his top scoring place.

Hatrick Hero!

A very tough and close encounter in a game with all to play for. An open match as expected, but Exness smiled last as Georgii Bartenev scored and made sure the game went his side’s way with his hattrick.
It was Swiss Markets that opened the scoreline however when Costas Ioannidis scored a nice long range shot.
The lack of substitutes proved costly for Swiss Markets as they were out of breath and stamina by the end of the game. This was a factor that Exness took advantage of and took the three points their way. It was a close game and kept is on our toes till the very end, but it was the Yellow’s who smiled in the end!

Let’s Take A Look At The Upcoming Games For This Week.

Leaders Columbia face RCB and want to avoid last weeks struggle with another victory. Bank giants RCB, on the other hand, may be on the bottom of the table, but will not give up any easy fight as they gradually seem to be improving as a team.
Second placed Exness will go up against Swiss Markets in an attempt to return to their winning ways, following their draw last week. Swiss Markets will seek for an upset since it’s something they have already done on several occasions.
XM 2 and BDSwiss will face each other as both teams will try to earn the three points after failing to do so in the previous week. Both teams see this game as the perfect opportunity to bounce back and climb a place or two up the table.
The most interesting fixture of the evening lies under the game of IQ Option and XM 1 where the winner will most likely get third place. XM 1’s top goalscorer Christos Asprou returns after suspension, while IQ Option captain Joan Lopes seems to be on fire lately, and all of this adds up to a thrilling game!
Good luck to all teams!

Both teams wanted to win. A run of unpleasant results had to end for the teams and this was their opportunity to do so. 
RCB started off better and had a nice chance to open the score. IQ Option bounced back quickly and dominated the game by creating more chances. By half time IQ Option where 0-2 up and many rushed to say that the game was over! 
Second half was very different with either side scoring and RCB looking confident for the comeback. Both teams played nice attacking the football. It was also nice to see many different players scoring for both teams, but IQ Option captain Joan Lopez scored twice to make sure all three points went to his team. 
It’s really important for us to see the shaking of hands between opponents at the end of each game!

XM 2 had a shaky start to the game following their loss last week. This is something that Exness tried to take advantage of starting the match with attacking manner and scoring early with a wonderful heel flick with Aleksey Kokhanov. 
Exness had several more chances to finish off the game but failed to do so. This gave XM 2 the courage to step up. The leagues’ top scorer Vasilis Koudounas couldn’t stay a second consecutive match without scoring, so with a beautiful solo effort very late in the game managed to equalise. However, he was the man to miss the chance of the game when failing to score in an open goal only seconds later!

Showing great improvement over the last few weeks, Swiss Markets were up to shock the unbeaten league leaders Columbia.
Swiss Markets had an enthusiastic start to the game. Columbia didn’t have the best of starts and were forced to follow the pace of Swiss Markets. Columbia had goalkeeper Marinos Yiangou on a fantastic evening and kept them alive in the match.
Hugo Coelho opened the score just after half-time with a nice left volley and set fore to the game. It was only a matter of time for Swiss Markets to score again and finish off the game.
But Columbia hadn’t signed off just yet. With only minutes to go, they managed to equalise with Lenos Chrisafi finishing off a nice team effort. In the dramatic closing minutes, Marios Nicolaou scored the winning goal to clinch away the victory!

The match started off rather slow for both teams. XM 1 had a few players missing due to suspension and injuries and desperately needed the 3 points, while BDSwiss wanted to continue their good form. 

The teams played nice football with a number of chances created on both ends of the pitch. Both goalkeepers put on a show by stopping the opponent strikers on several occasions. XM 1 showed us how vital their top scorer Christos Asprou is to them as they failed to score on numerous occasions. BDSwiss had Chris Papageorgiou on a good day giving two assists, and Borja Gomez Fernandez netted two goals to make sure his team got the victory. Peter Kozman also made the score sheet. XM 1 side was out of luck, and so goals from Andreas Rouvis and George Georgiou proved not to be enough to take away anything from this match.

Second Half Of The Season About To Kick Off!

With all the teams now familiar with each other, the second half of the season will surely hold a lot of surprises! Teams that have been underachieving will now have their chance to bounce back and climb up the league table, while others will have to maintain their streak to stay as high up as possible.
Columbia remains the only unbeaten team, while Exness, XM 1 and RCB are teams that haven’t tied so far. League leaders Columbia also have the best goal difference. Vasilis Koudounas and Christos Asprou both lead the league in goals, but Vasilis will have his chance to go top by himself this week as Christos is out due to suspension. As for the assist leaders, once again we have a combined first place with Stelios Kalopedis and Joan Lopez both on 7.
See you all on Monday!

The early league leaders Exness taking on a brave BDSwiss team who despite the score line 3-7 put in a better fight than it seems.

Exness took an early 1-0 lead, but BDSwiss Chris Papageorgiou hit a great equalizer from a powerful left foot free kick blasting through the Exness wall to make it 1-1!

You can see why Exness is top of the league though and with some very organized and slick passing they totally took over the game from here.

They out passed the BDSwiss side in the second half and they are both powerful, organized as well as individually talented with good team combination play.

They produced some great team goals and worth mentioning Denis Paradis excellent turn and control in one movement as well as cool finish, and his second for the day a classic “Toe Poke” finish stand out! And of course the great passing for the two goals finished off by Alexandr Fitiskin.

Although Alex Evans woke up late in the game with 2 great goals for BDSwiss.

Exness remains the team to beat in the league and will now bear the favorite jersey going into round 5 and beyond.

XM 1 started the game best though with Christos Asprou leading the way. He produced a great run and shot to make it 1-0. Colombia’s Yannis Shittas who despite not scoring always posed a threat, and Stelios Kalopedis who had a good game, combined well and also hit the post.

However, Demetris Kolanis made it 2-0 in a great and explosive counter attack.

Perhaps XM 1 fell asleep a little as Colombia took advantage and with a quick reply made it 1-2 and continue the comeback with Marios Nicolaou scoring two good goals either side of half-time.

Colombia then kept things very well organized and tight and through some good defending saw out the game with an impressive 4-2 win over a physically strong XM 1 side.

Swiss Markets started sharply hungry to record their first win with some good efforts from Costas Ioannides left foot who possess for sure one of the strongest shots in the league. Notably, Stefanos Mitsi (perhaps the only CEO) competing in the league drove his team on with great passion and desire.

Swiss Markets deservedly took an early lead through some good team play and a great one two and Costas Ioannides scores.

RCB was just getting started though and quickly woke up. Scoring a quick equalizer. In the second half, the continued and put on a great display with a nice goal from Ellinas Philopimin after a lovely turn and placed shot. And followed up with arguably scoring the goal of the round with a great long pass from defense and hitting a great first-time volley giving goalkeeper Vassos Demetriou no chance!

Two goals from well performing Pablo Millan didn’t help Swiss Markets as RCB have a stronger team than the league table displays and game finished 5-3!

IQ Option vs XM 2   3-3

In a great competitive encounter between IQ Option and XM 2 we saw some great individual displays from Yiannis Zittis and perhaps the best centre-forward in the league Vasilis Koudounas.

But it was IQ Option that’s started best and took an early 2-0 lead after some great team play and two goals from Christoforos Andreou.

XM 2 fought back and through some excellent combination play from Yiannis Zittis and Vasilis Koudounas scored to make it 1-2.

Joan Lopez from IQ Option had a quick reply though and some nice team play led to a nice goal and a 3-1 lead at half time.

In the second half though Koudounas added another 2 great goals one left foot curler in the top corner and another from a clever through pass from a free kick again provided by Zittis and coolly finished by Koudounas who grabbed the hat trick and MVP and really looks like a complete center forward and now tops the goalscoring chart for the league with a healthy 8 goals in 4 games!

Whereas IQ Option, a late entry to the league have shown everyone what a solid and well-organized team they are.
